My Favorite Things July 2013

IMG_2040Oh my goodness! Where is the summer going? During the warm months, I wish I could slow down time. Luckily, I’m writing this on the drive up to the cabin, where everything moves at a sluggish, yet happy, pace. Every weekend in July was jam packed, so I’m thankful to have down time to catch up on my reading, tan, and cooking. Here are the things I was totally obsessed with over the past thirty days.

IMG_4350The Tracy Anderson Method. Although I’ve been working out regularly for a few years now, I recently decided to take my exercise regime to the next level. Enter Tracy Anderson, celebrity trainer to the stars and the woman responsible for Gwyneth’s amazingly slim and toned body. I’m doing her 90-day program, Metamorphosis. It consists of 30 minutes of dance cardio followed by 30 minutes of intensive muscular structure training and every 10 days, the routines change. It’s tough, but so far I’m loving it!

IMG_4300Dinner Salads. A new focus on my body requires a renewed outlook on eating. I’ve been trying to eat lots more vegetables and fruits, including being vegan before 6 PM. The market is filled with a bounty of ripe produce, so it’s the ideal time to be making salads. I’m really into dinner salads, a massive salad with protein and cheese and sometimes croutons. These salads serve as an entire meal, hence the name ‘dinner salad’ and are lovely paired with a glass of chilled rosé.

It’s under $7, so I don’t feel bad stocking up on a couple of bottles and drinking it as my everyday sparkler.

I love how the collar is lined with gold detailing and how the length is totally Goldilocks: it’s not too long or too short. Here’s a fun fact about me. The beach cover up is my all time favorite article of clothing and I have quite the collection of them!

From the moving ceremony to the scrumptious tres leche cake to the barn dance party, the entire event was perfect and one that I will never forget. I was honored to celebrate with the couple, my family, and friends.
